Illustrated poster promoting "Cat Mother and Mendocino Coast Music" exhibition at the Kelley House Museum, 2022


The Kelley House pays tribute to legendary local ‘70s band Cat Mother and their impact on the Mendocino Coast with a collection of ephemera, albums, artwork, and articles. Cat Mother was an eclectic rock band formed in Greenwich Village, New York in 1967. They toured with Jimi Hendrix who co-produced their first album which featured the hit “Good Old Rock N Roll” in 1969. By 1970 Cat Mother was living on the Mendocino Coast inspiring locals with outdoor “Boogies” and sparking creativity and community on the coast.
